Have you been using this DVD player for several years? If so, there may just be residue on the lens inside, which keeps it from reading a DVD and causes it to freeze. Have you tried running a cleaning disc through it to see if that fixes the problem? Worth a try. ;)

    It is probaly 8 years old - yes we tried cleaning.I have heard there is sometimes a fix for the software where you can download something form the internet onto a dvd and run it through your machine... have youheard of such a thing?

  • hotlinguist Nov 28, 2012

    I've only heard of it for new Blu-Ray players. Do you know the model number of your player? Do you still have the owner's manual? There should be a toll-free number for RCA in it.

  • hotlinguist Nov 28, 2012

    Try going here to get info. You'll need the model number of your player, I believe.

SOURCE: new dvd/vhs player but old tv

The easiest thing to do would be get a new TV plain and simple sounds as if you could use one n e ways. But first make sure you are hooked up through coaxal to the tv that will allow everything to run on channel 3. Let me know your current hookup.

SOURCE: Player suddenly freezes

Try running a dvd cleaner through it first, before trying anything else (the type that looks like a DVD with a brush underneath).

The regular DVD might have been a fluke (scratches, rental?, burned dvd?)

Was there anything special about the new Blu-Ray Disc - what was the tile? On certain titles, you may need the firmware upgrade found at:

SOURCE: My dvd player freezes when I view rental/bought movies

Is the player new? If it's a new DVD player and still under warranty, I would return it, exchange it or possibly, consider changing brands: perhaps to a Phillips brand DVD player. After all, the Phillips corporation guarantees its DVD players will play everything, just read the box in which the player's packaged - it's the best bang for your buck. With DVD players being so inexpensive these days, the best option is to buy new. Keep computing Chomskyites.

SOURCE: Lost the remote to the Durabrand DVD Model DVD 1002

Durabrand is Walmart's home brand another words they own a company that makes that brand of products so they can sell it all cheaper than any other brand and make more of a profit from it. I could not find the company website so there is no way to order or request a replacement remote. You may have to buy a used one of ebay or buy a new dvd player altogether. I doubt these will work with codes but here you go.

Codes I found that you can try
codes listed: 0003, 0171, 0178, 0180, 0463, and 1034, 189, 220

I hope this helps, even if its not the answer you wanted regarding being out of luck on this one.Thank you for stopping by Fixya!. A Fixya rating would be appreciated if I helped with your question.

Me and my friend want to watch a movie but we cant find the cord for it. do u know where you can find a cord for a Spectroniq DVD player. Also, do you know what the cord is supposed to look for? Thanks


Hi,

you are suppose to use a RCA cord to connect the DVD player to your TV. The RCA cord is a yellow white and red cord. You can get the cord from any electronics parts store in your area or online from ebay.com or amazon.com

Below is a picture of what the RCA cord looks like for quick identification;

After you have gotten the cord, let me know if you don't know how to connect the cord from the DVD player to the.

Yours sincerely.

I have a Sony DVD player hooked up to my TV. The player is approximately 5 yrs old. It seems that when its on for 15-20 minutes, the movie in it freezes. Even if the movie is brand new, the message on...


Well I wont be as quick to buy a new player yet!!

Firstly i would clean the lens and try running it the the cover off.. That should give you some time. But yes eventually you will need a player. Also the movie that freeze in the same place every time, try that on a neighbours or friends player to be certin it works :)..

I always try to avoid spending unnecessary cash or delaying it for as much as i possibly can. Hopefully taking the cover off will allow it to cool better giving you a few months to get things in order.
